Keep ATV's off city streets or get ticketed

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Police department is reminding people to not drive ATV's on city streets.

The department has received numerous complaints in the last few months about people driving 4-wheelers and dirt bikes on city streets.

To remain safe, they want people only to ride those vehicles along trails sand dunes, and woods.

If you see someone not following the law, contact APD.

"If we can go to where they are parking these vehicles or trying to hide it, we have a better opportunity of getting them," said Captain Michael Persley.

Most of the ATV violations happen during the evening hours of 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. Most of the complaints consists of noise and high rates of speed.

Albany police can issue a citation for operating an un-registered motor vehicle on a city right-a-way or possibly tow your ATV if they catch you violating the law.
